Pelham Bouquet. Shared the spotlight with Duke Snyder in a shaving cream commercial (Duke calls him a clubhouse "beatnik.") Bouquet suffered career-ending lacerations when he slid into home on his car keys. Stains from his injuries near home plate at the Polo Grounds were visible for two seasons. #mlb #foundtype #baseball #coolcapitals #vintage #1950s

Bleeder Howe. Bespectacled giant who banjoed 1,877 of the cheapest hits in all of baseball. #baseball #americana #mlb #logo

Moss Fungo. Perennial interim manager. Skippered at least one inning in the majors for 47 consecutive seasons from 1934-1981. Moss is credited with the "shirt-over-the-windbreaker" look sported by many players in the 1960s. #baseball #mlb #foundtype #vintage #fabric

Pontius Pluotte. His loud, unrelenting infield chatter earned him 11 consecutive purpose pitches for every one of his 11 official at-bats in the majors. #vintage #baseball #americana #mlb

Rant Haner. Clipped by a deadball-era line drive that, according to the papers, left him with "diminished social graces." #mlb #baseball #vintage

Blind Lemon Shantz. Last of the stand up catchers. #vintage #mlb #baseball

Pep Pfaff. Chronic beanballer. Would get two strikes on an aging Babe Ruth then dramatically point to an empty spot on the bench before striking him out with a wicked change up. #vintage #baseball #mlb #americana
